Championship weekend is finally here, and the NFL’s magnifying glass is situated squarely on 2 very different cities: Denver, CO, and Seattle, WA.
In the first epic showdown of the weekend, 2 legends at the quarterback position, Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos and Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, go head-to-head in the playoffs for the 4th time in their careers. And with Manning no longer a Colt, the rivalry remains, but the location has changed. For those attending Sunday’s game, there are a plethora of activities, hotels and restaurants to enjoy in the Mile High City. READ MORE
In this all-new episode of Toy Hunter, Jordan embarks on one of his most nostalgic hunts of all time. While minding his own business at Seattle Comic Con — trying to make his sales mark of $15,000 — Jordan receives a surprise visit from ’70s child star, Danny Bonaduce of The Partridge Family.
Jordan and Danny strike up a quick friendship, and Danny asks Jordan to go in search of one Partridge Family item Danny has been unable to track down: the 1971 Partridge Family Board Game by Milton Bradley. Jordan agrees to search for Danny’s request, and in turn, Danny asks Jordan to come on his Seattle radio show once he has found it, to talk about the game and Jordan’s rare toy-finding abilities. Jordan ultimately finds the board game, but also comes across many other rare vintage Partridge Family toys that he hopes will strike Danny’s interest enough to take them off his hands.
To find out more about Jordan’s visit with Danny, and to find out what other amazing items Jordan tracked down, tune in for an all-new episode, tonight at 9|8c.
Plus, check out these exclusive, behind-the-scenes photos from Toy Hunter’s Buying 4 Bonaduce.
Jordan: Mark? What the hell are you doing here?
Mark: Buying some toys. What are you doing?
Jordan: I’m buying some toys.
Mark: Snooze, you lose, sucker! (maniacal laugh)
Jordan is in for the fight of his life as he travels to Florida and California looking for amazing, vintage toy gold to sell at Comic Con in the Emerald City of Seattle. With Jordan already falling behind his nemesis, Mark, it’s clear that he has some ground to make up — and he plans to do just that.
With a goal of selling his inventory of toys for at least $15,000, will Jordan be able to pull off this amazing feat or will he be stuck with his toys, defeated by his nemesis? Find out on an all-new episode of Toy Hunter, tonight @ 9|8c.
Plus, don’t forget to check out these exclusive, behind-the-scenes photos from Jordan’s Battle for Seattle.
Tonight, Feb. 4 at 9|8c, catch the very last of Anthony Bourdain’s adrenaline-fueled, booze-brimming, food-filled layovers. His final 36-hour jaunt? An uber-quick trip to Seattle.
Watch as he ditches the airport to sample some of the stinkiest, stickiest cheeses that Melrose Market has to offer, buys his daughter a whoopee cushion at a toy store that caters to adults (and serial killers?), and takes a not-so-family-friendly tour of the city’s seedier history.

If you’re one of the 20 million people who have read Fifty Shades of Grey, then you’ve probably fantasized about being swept away to Seattle. Well, dream no more, because the luxurious, waterfront Edgewater Hotel is making it possible to have a romantic rendezvous, Christian Grey-style.
With The Edgewater Hotel’s 50 Shades of Romance package, you’ll be welcomed to your room with a bottle of Bollinger Rose champagne and a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey in the nightstand – replacing that other best-selling book, we assume. After cruising through the streets of Seattle with a demo drive in a Mr. Grey-esque Audi, you’ll recreate Christian and Ana’s sailing excursion on Puget Sound. Conclude your weekend with a tour of the infamous couple’s favorite Seattle hot spots, courtesy of a custom Fifty Shades landmarks map. With such a jam-packed weekend, chances are the room’s bed will be put to more practical, rather than creative, use.
Yesterday, the world lost the queen of romantic comedies: Nora Ephron. The movies that she wrote and directed are not only romantic movie staples, they are also about the cities where the relationships blossomed.
Although Nora Ephron is best known for writing and directing Sleepless in Seattle, which highlighted the waterfront communities of Seattle and Baltimore, her other movies celebrated another equally exciting place: Manhattan. When Harry Met Sally, Ephron’s first big hit, and You’ve Got Mail, which reunited actors Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan via dial-up internet, are both romantic comedy classics, as well as love letters to the city that gave her a voice — New York.
Relive Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s cross-country romance with our photos of Seattle’s sights and our gallery of Extreme Houseboats, which features homes like Tom’s in the movie.
